Take our gifts, Lord Je­sus,
They are Thine alone;
We can on­ly bring Thee
What was first Thine own.


Take them, bless­èd Mas­ter,
Though so few and small,
Use the gifts, we pray Thee,
We would bring our all.

When we have but pen­nies,
These we bring to Thee;
When our gifts are larg­er,
May they all be free.


Take the hearts we of­fer,
Take our will­ing hands;
May our feet be wait­ing,
For Thy blest com­mands.


Take our hap­py prais­es,
Hear our ear­nest pray­er;
Take the gifts we bring Thee,
Make our lives Thy care.
